    A great value entry into the world of Benromach, the malt will be available at the end of 2021 for under €40, which is a good price for an aged whisky with no colouring. Benromach only uses 1st fill casks, in this case a blend of 70% ex-Bourbon and 30% ex-Oloroso. In addition, it is a Speyside whisky that is peated, so today it is more of an exception among the classic Speysiders. Does it make sense?
    • Nose
      This is of course not Islay peat, first you have to consider whether there is any smoke in it at all. But this consideration lasts only briefly, because then comes a nice, warm smoke that is restrained: smoke for those who find Islay too blatant. The smoke is followed by sweet, ripe fruit, pears and sweet, red apples. The whisky can stand still for a while, then the smoke becomes clearer, Mirabelle plums are added to the fruits.
    • Taste
      The alcohol is 43% vol. quite ok, together with the smoke it brings enough power. The fruits are there, peach and mirabelle plum, mixed with the smoke of a still slightly smoldering fire. Wood is not directly noticeable, but you can feel it on the palate and find what you are looking for. The bourbon casks contribute nice vanilla.
    • Finish
      The smoldering wood fire remains on the palate as a smoky covering.

      This is a nice whisky that boasts a warm smoky note combined with fruit. For the price and age this whisky is really good. On the one hand it is pleasing, but with the smoke it offers an aspect that gives depth and maturity that you have to like.
